As you watch Daniel read through ‘The Boy Who Lived’, you’ll notice some amazing artwork interspersed in the experience, thanks to some talented fans. Brilliantly, you yourself can get involved in future chapters, from Chapter Two onwards, so your own pieces can feature alongside our special guest narrators.

Cover Art Released for US & UK Versions of Quidditch Through the Ages Illustrated Edition

Back in April 2019, we shared the announcement of an illustrated edition of the Harry Potter companion book Quidditch Through the Ages. We revealed that it would be illustrated by Emily Gravett and published in hardcover on October 6th 2020 – previously it was the 1st. There will be a regular edition as well as a Deluxe edition.

Today, Bloomsbury and Scholastic have sent over their covers and have released several illustrations from inside the book!

A full press release can be read below:

Bloomsbury Children’s Books today reveals the cover of the full-colour illustrated edition of J.K. Rowling’s Quidditch Through the Ages illustrated by Emily Gravett. The cover showcases some of the key elements of Harry Potter’s favourite sport – including players, team badges and a hovering Golden Snitch waiting to be caught. Devoured by Harry Potter in his first year, Quidditch Through the Ages is consulted on a daily basis by the young witches and wizards at Hogwarts, and this beautifully illustrated edition is set to become a firm favourite for readers of all ages who dream of grabbing a broomstick and taking to the skies.

Publishing in the UK and US on 6th October 2020, Quidditch Through the Ages Illustrated Edition features showstopping artwork from Emily Gravett, twice winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal. Emily’s wildly creative imagination has conjured a cornucopia of sporting memorabilia to surprise and delight. With some items lovingly created in a dazzling range of media and infused with her trademark visual wit, these charming and funny artworks are the perfect pairing for J.K. Rowling’s humorous insights into the magical, airborne sport.

Quidditch Through the Ages invites readers to take a whistle-stop tour through wizarding history, reliving epic matches and great moments along the way. Accessible at any point in the Harry Potter reading journey, it is packed with trivia, tales of on-pitch antics, and Quidditch stars past and present. The sports almanac also contains comprehensive profiles of teams loved by readers of the Harry Potter novels.

Quidditch Through the Ages first appears in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. After catching Harry Potter with a copy, it is also the reason that Professor Snape invents the rule that no library books are allowed outside of Hogwarts School. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone continues to mesmerise readers, and in 2019 was the bestselling backlist title across all children’s publishing with over 177,000 copies sold. The full Harry Potter series took the top seven spots in a 2020 chart of favourite book as chosen by primary school students, and was recently selected by thousands of young Blue Peter viewers as its ultimate Blue Peter Book Award winner.

A percentage of proceeds from the sale of this edition will go to J.K. Rowling’s own international charity Lumos, which helps some of the world’s most vulnerable children and young people to have a better life; and to Comic Relief. Scholastic are set to publish in the US at the same time.
